Why is inspecting canned, frozen and convenience foods important?

Whether it is HACCP, IFS, BRC or another standard, food producers require certification and undergo audits to meet the retail industry’s quality and safety requirements. Consumers expect high-quality products. Goods containing contaminants that leave the factory can trigger very costly recalls that can tarnish a company’s reputation.

Raw materials can be one source of organic and inorganic contaminants. Machine wear and careless staff are other potential sources. Typical contaminants include the following:

  • Stones
